Panaca, NV

Among other beautiful State Parks in Lincoln County lies Cathedral Gorge State Park. Known for its dramatic, carved cliffs and slot canyons, what lies here today are remnants of the Pliocene-era. Officially set aside as State Park turf in 1924, the park became official in 1935 with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Many of the parks picnicking facilities were constructed in the 1930s by the CCC, including the stone water tower, picnic awning, and restrooms.

It can be difficult to stand out in a state so rich in amazing outdoor wonders, but Great Basin National Park does just that.

Nevada’s largest national park is filled with fabulous natural treasures, from spectacular alpine lakes to limestone caverns and even a small glacier, yet it has an unusually low number of annual visitors. Visitors to the park in spring or fall can conceivably hike for hours on backcountry trails without seeing another soul.
